One of the last family owned publications in Ireland has been named as the European Local Newspaper of the Year.

The Mayo News emerged as the first choice at the annual Newspaper Design and Concept Awards.

Almost 200 publications from across Europe were entered in the competition.

It is the second time the paper has won the title, having previously been successful in 2007.

The Mayo News has been published in Westport since 1892.

The paper was redesigned this year.
